Features of the area

Stirling Group

Stirling is one of Scotland’s 32 unitary council areas.

It was created in 1996, adopting the boundaries of the former Stirling district Central Region. Itt covers most of the former county of Stirling, excluding Falkirk, and the south-western part of the former county of Perth. The area borders Clackmannanshire, Falkirk, Perth and Kinross, Argyll and Bute, and both East and West Dunbartonshire.

The majority of the population of the area is located in its southeast corner, in the city of Stirling and in the surrounding lowland communities.
